Autoimmune Diseases occur when our the body's immune system cannot tell the difference between the body and foreign objects. When this confusion occurs, the body creates auto-antibodies that mistakenly attacks its own, healthy cells. Autoimmune disorders are very common as they are the leading cause of death and disability. People at risk for developing autoimmune diseases are individuals with a family history, as well as people exposed to specific environmental influences. Women are more frequently affected by autoimmune diseases than men. Common treatments for autoimmune disorders include alleviating symptoms as well as suppressing the immune system to allow for damage to be repaired.
